The Technology Company
System Administrator (Current Employee) –  United Kingdom17 June 2016
This is an excellent company for someone who is young and starting out in the Computer Science field. The technologies developed by the company are the next generation in computer technology. The companies products are niche market, but scale very well in any large enterprise, or public environment.

The people working at Cray are the most helpful, and knowledgeble in the industry. Ask a question and if they do not know, they will findout, or point you in a direction where you will find it.

The management in my department is very challenging. I have been through three managers in my three year tenure at Cray.

The hardest part of the job is dealing with the lack of communication about change and implementation. You will get information, but it is minimal and not very informative. The training in the support departments at Cray does not exist. They will send you to seminars, but the seminars are generally IT companies struting their products.

The most enjoyable part of the job, are the people, and their appreciation of hardwork and the assistance in helping you succeed. This is mostly through your peers, and co-workers.
Pros
Salary, benefits, culture, technology
Cons
Long hours, lack of complete communication, inconsistance between non-revenue ehancing departments.

Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MN9 June 2016
For an old school computer company, they have done a great job of getting early career software and hardware engineers working for them. Great mentors for the early career people. Execs are working hard to bring supercomputing to the commercial market. Have some nice progressive hr policies like you can work with your manager on how much vacation you want!
Pros
progressive time off program
Cons
trying to make a comeback
